Rights Unit Finds Bias Against Transgender Student [6-Year Old First Grader]

Rights Unit Finds Bias Against Transgender Student

Coy Mathis, 6, center, played video games in March while at home in Fountain, Colo., with her sister Dakota, left, and their mother, Kathryn. By DAN FROSCH Published: June 23, DENVER — A Colorado school district discriminated against a transgender first grader when it refused to let her use the girl’s bathroom, the state’s civil rights division has determined, a decision gay and transgender advocates say will have an indelible impact on how such cases are handled in the future.

In a sharply worded ruling, the division concluded that the Fountain-Fort Carson School District needlessly created a situation in which the student, Coy Mathis, would be subject to harassment when it barred her from the girls’ bathroom even though she clearly identified as female.

Telling Coy “that she must disregard her identity while performing one of the most essential human functions constitutes severe and pervasive treatment, and creates an environment that is objectively and subjectively hostile, intimidating or offensive,” Steven Chavez, the division director, wrote in the decision.

The dispute over whether Coy, 6, should be allowed to use the girls’ bathroom was seen by some as a critical test of how state antidiscrimination laws were applied to transgender students.

Born biologically a boy, Coy began identifying as a girl after just a few years, growing her wispy blond hair long, wearing dresses, and telling family and friends they should refer to her as female.

During kindergarten, Coy’s parents informed her school that their child identified as a girl and should be treated as one. Initially, the school, just south of Colorado Springs, agreed.

only two words needed in the face of this lunancy:

1. home
2. school

Just what kind of parents are indulging these kinds of fantasies in their kids — and this early, too?

The world is clearly much more evil and lunatic than before.

But. The important 2 words are not home school.

They are Almighty God.

Better yet, arrest the parents of the child they are perverting. If this kids bathroom plumbing was designed for the boys room, then that is where he is to go.

Yes, a means of yielding to Almighty God.

This is so bad it is harrowing. It would have been treated as arrant child abuse very few decades ago.

And people laughed at the notion that if society gave into the demands of the Gay Rights activists it would clear the path for the “Transgender “ movement to step up to the plate and be the next to assert their rights as the next aggrieved minority group seeking preferential treatment

I am willing to hold firm on the transgender issue because if we grant special rights to these people they will use their new found power to impose themselves on others and flaunt their life style and appearance on every one they meet

It was a lot cheaper when it was a Text for Animal Behavior at Concordia University 30 years ago.

Used copies at the Amazon link starting at $0.32

Or you can probably obtain it via a library.

Yes you may have met some distasteful people. However I had hoped you were possessed of the wisdom to know your view was, indeed, limited, and would be glad, rather than defensive of your limited view, to learn that it is not at all a fair representative sample of the homeschool experience in the USA. If all the Filipinos you had known were robbers, does that mean all Filipinos in the USA are robbers, or even most of them?

I picked this name years ago and I will not cede it to snobbish cynics with false accusations.

(By the way I personally am an old-earth creationist FWIW but most young earthers know more truths about the theory of evolution and about physics than the average clueless modern American schoolboy or schoolgirl.)

I know it was self-evident that students of Lutheran Schools excelled beyond the capabilities of their public schooled peers - and know that work-product was as much due to the parents involved as it was due to the schools. Much as the inverse can be said of the public schools whose failure parents, or the selfish lack thereof, are also responsible for.

I base those opinions upon direct observation too. And I will continue to trust my own eyes and free mind over the ability of some gas bag who’s regurgitating factoids in a flaccid attempt to prop up the worship of their self.

>>I picked this name years ago

Then you’ve been worshiping your own flatulent “High Tech” image for a long time.

Education majors are taught by ultra leftist education college professors. The education majors have to toe the hardcore leftist line. Education colleges churn out leftist teachers.

Voila. We get what we get. Leftist sewage pits called public schools.
